Secondly, round faces are considered to be extremely youthful—a good thing to keep in mind as you age.

Now all you need is a great hairstyle. Hmm…maybe a bob perhaps?

For a while now, we’ve been really found of hair that is cut with a razor. It seems to bring about a kind of definition that can’t be found with sheers. This inverted bob proves it.
